High School Programming this Week


What an amazing week we have had at the high school.  Our 9th and 10th graders are on Week Without Walls programs in Bintan, Indonesia and Chaing Rai, Thailand respectively doing team-building and service projects as an entire class.  Here in Saigon, our students are working on their Group 4 Projects for IB Science and preparing for some 11th and 12th grade specific programming on Friday and Saturday (for 11th graders).

Our 11th graders will be having a CAS retreat this Friday and Saturday.  These students will be learning essential research skills, participating in team building activities, and going on a field trip on Saturday to Cao Minh Resort, Dong Nai.  11th graders need to arrive at school at 7:30 am for departure and will return to school by 4:30 pm on Saturday.  The Community Activity and Service Retreat Schedule is here.

Our 12th graders will be attending workshops on college essay writing, having a luncheon with their 2nd grade buddies, learning techniques on stress reduction, and then bowling together in the afternoon.  Here is the  Senior Focus Schedule for Friday (12th graders do not have Saturday activities).

A special thanks to an amazing high school faculty that has created these programs for our students.
